image thumb44 Yahoo: Users will have the privilege to use alternate Search Engines on Yahoo Homepage

Users can check their mail on other providers right from their Yahoo homepage and it appears Yahoo might just try something similar with search. Meaning that it would give users the privilege to select a search engine of their choice right on the homepage. Apparently Yahoo is quite open to letting users select a search engine of their choice and not having them chained to Yahoo Search alone. Will this include Google too apart from Microsoft’s Bing? While this is a very big step and a pretty intelligent one too, but I doubt if Microsoft will be happy to let this happen given that it uses Bing’s algorithm on Yahoo sites. Lets see how this turns out to be and will this open strategy for search exclude Google.
